Watch: Bob Cavnar on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann

Bob Cavnar appeared on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann on Friday night, October 22nd, to discuss his book, Disaster on the Horizon: High Stakes, High Risks, and the Story Behind the Deepwater Well Blowout.

Bob describes how the lifting of the moratorium on deepwater drilling early last week was entirely premature, and will only signal further damage. He discusses with Keith how little progress has been made since the blowout in terms of safety precautions within the oil industry. New regulations that have come into effect since the blowout, Bob explains, have made a difference only in increasing the amount of paperwork being pushed around.

Six months after the worst environmental catastrophe in U.S. history, Olbermann asks, “What have we learned?”. The answer: “Not much”.
